Scrapbook containing numerous newspaper clippings from the late 1830s to the 1850s, mounted into a volume originally used as an account book from 1813-1817. Much of the subject matter relates to slavery in the United States and the antislavery movement. Clippings of published poems and prose include those by Whittier, Longfellow, Tennyson, and Lydia Maria Child. This volume has a hand-written index and is inscribed: "Began March 1844. H. L. Thoreau, Concord, Mass." Some of the loosely inserted items have dates in the 1850s, after the death of Helen Thoreau.
